Trust in the Lord and serve faithfully

President Henry B. Eyring, first counselor in the First Presidency, spoke to members in 77 stakes Oct. 25 during a Northern Utah Stake Conference Satellite Broadcast emanating from Logan. He advised members to put the kingdom of God first in their lives and trust in the Lord for the rest, and that if they do so they will have the Lord's help while confronting life's inevitable difficulties. "Jesus Christ reigns in the affairs of men, even though many or most people fail to recognize His hand," President Eyring said. "He does not give an assurance of all that we might want, but we have a sure way to gain His assistance even in the worst of times. The kingdom of God in the earth is His Restored Church." In addition to President Eyring, other speakers included Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve, Elder Ronald A. Rasband of the Presidency of the Seventy and Sister Cheryl C. Lant, general president of the Primary. Elder Rasband conducted the conference, which took place in the Spectrum on the Utah State University campus. Eleven Logan stakes attended the event on-site, and it was broadcast via satellite to 66 additional stakes in the Utah North Area. President Eyring said economic concerns presently envelop many in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. An antidote to economic difficulty, he said, is paying a full tithe and earnestly serving in inspired callings. "Even in difficult times we should pay tithing, which is the financial law of His kingdom," President Eyring said. "We can help Him by giving service to our fellow members in the kingdom and to those outside if in need. Sometimes we may not be able to find employment, but He always recognizes our willingness and capacity to help in His cause.
